GEORGE, Iowa — George-Little Rock not only got a 74-53 victory Monday against Trinity Christian, it also got a glimpse of what could be a bright future.

Still, the game was close at halftime with G-LR clinging to a 29-27 lead. But the home team ran away with it in the second half, out-scoring the Tigers 45-26 after the break.

The Mustangs advance to take on Boyden-Hull at 8 p.m. Thursday.
